Encoder probe groups¶
The probe configuration page contains two sections. The left-hand pane is the dashboard. It allows you to select the desired group or <All> groups. The right- hand pane provides a hierarchal view of the group, probes and individual encoders. In the dashboard to the right of each group is a number indicating how many probes and encoders are in the group.
At the top of the dashboard there are three icons that allow you to create a new group, rename a group and delete a group. Below that is a text search bar in case there are a large number of groups.
Selecting a group displays the probes and encoders within the group. The +/- icons toggle the probe encoder display on/off. The color-coded check mark makes it easy to quickly determine the status of the probe and each encoder.
Probe status indicates if it is inaccessible or running and accessible .
The status of each encoder is displayed in the text to the right of the name next to a color-coded icon (green check mark: all is well, red: stopped).
Hovering anywhere on the probe line turns the background blue and displays five icons in the upper-right corner: <Assign profile>, <Create & assign profile>, <Sync>, <Edit> and <Delete>.
Assign profile is a planned future feature.
Create and assign profile is a planned future feature.
Sync synchronizes the probe. A pop-up asks if you want to sync with <Current> or <Previous>. Selecting <Current> updates the probe with the changes you just made to its configuration. Selecting <Previous> allows you to revert to the old probe configuration. This comes in handy if the changes you made did not yield the desired results.
Edit probe is the same as clicking on the probe name and opening the probe edit window.
Delete removes the entire probe and only applies to empty groups when no probes have been assigned.
